CII R06 Exam: Financial Planning Practice

The CII’s R06 exam forms part of the Diploma in Regulated Financial Planning. The exam is 3 hours and based on two case studies, which the candidates receive two weeks prior to the exam sitting. The nominal pass mark is 55%.

The exam syllabus covers the obtaining of client information and understanding of their aims, objectives and risk profile, the conducting of a fact-find, the analysis of client data, the formulation of a financial plan and the making of recommendations, and the monitoring of client circumstances.

  • "Brand Financial Training's great material was easy to use and really helped me get through some areas to get the Diploma. I'll use them next time for future exams."

  • "At the age of 20 I became the youngest person to hold the CII Diploma. I achieved this through hard work and the use of resources including those provided by Brand Financial Training; in particular the mock exams, study notes and the extremely helpful Calculation Workbooks. I'm now moving forward with the Advanced Diploma and continue to use Brand Financial Training's resources to aid my progression to Chartered Status. I certainly recommend them."

  • I was told about Brand Financial Training by a colleague at work and thought it sounded too good to be true but gave it a go anyway and I'm so glad that I did! The website is really helpful to find out more information about different qualifications, pass rates and discovered that by taking one extra exam it would give me a certificate in mortgage advice which is vital for my current role. The service from Brand has been top quality from start to finish and both their products and service are second to none.

  • "I'm now Chartered... I have sat six exams in a year - all supported by Brand and passed them all. Thank you!"

  • "I was having a particular problem with one of the R0 exams needed for my Level 4 Qualification. Having failed the exam a few times and tried one or two learning sources without success I tried the Webinars offered by Brand Financial Training. They were focused and relevant and after also downloading a number of exam papers I passed at the next attempt with far more confidence! I will continue to use the learning resources and would recommend them without hesitation."
    Thornton HolmesThornton HolmesDirector, Orchid Financial Services Ltd, Peterborough
  • "I've used your resources for 3 exams so far and have always passed first time.  I find these questions help to highlight those areas in which I am weak and which may need further study.  I also find that questions in the exam are phrased in a way that I would not normally use, and that reading mock questions helps me to be aware of and alert to these.  Your mock papers were invaluable in helping me to prepare for my exams."
